Apple has announced a new short form documentary series Greatness Code, to be produced by acclaimed director Gotham Chopra.

Greatness Code is a landmark, short-form unscripted series that spotlights untold stories from the greatest athletes in the world.

The first season unfolds with seven mini-episodes, each examining a pivotal moment that defined an athlete’s career.

Internationally revered athletes featured in season one include:

Four-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA Champion and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist LeBron James

Six-time Super Bowl Champion and four-time Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady

Olympic Gold Medalist and Co-Captain of the US Women’s National Soccer Team Alex Morgan

Worlds Fastest Man and eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt

Record-holding Olympic gold Medalist Snowboarder Shaun White

Five-time Olympic Gold medalist and 15-time World Champion swimmer Katie Ledecky

11-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater

Greatness Code will join Apple’s slate of critically acclaimed unscripted programming, including the hit documentary Beastie Boys Story and broadly praised docuseries Home and Visible.

Greatness Code is a co-production between powerhouse sports content platforms Religion of Sports, which is co-founded by Chopra, Brady, and NFL Hall of Fame legend Michael Strahan; and Uninterrupted, the athlete empowerment brand founded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter.

The series is directed by Gotham Chopra, who also executive produces through Religion of Sports, and executive produced by Maverick Carter via Uninterrupted. Ameeth Sankaran also serves as executive producer through Religion of Sports, and Devin Johnson executive produces via Uninterrupted.

Greatness Code will debut globally 10 July, exclusively on Apple TV+.
